This newcomer to one of Kraków's most ancient, romantic and exclusive streets has wasted no time in establishing itself among the city's finest restaurants, winning a 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Award for best restaurant serving Polish Cuisine in the world. Such outrageous praise usually precedes disappointment, but Art Restaurant makes and sustains an immediate impression of splendour as you enter under an enormous crystal chandelier beneath which a pianist performs on a white grand piano. In warm weather enjoy the quiet courtyard garden full of plants and lanterns, which lighten the formality of the five-star, white-glove service; in winter the historical ambiance of the 16th century building suffices. The food is Polish at its most modern and innovative, with the creativity missing when the restaurant was named apparently put into the artistic dishes coming out of the kitchen. The best way to experience Art is via one of their evening tasting menus of 5-, 7- or 9-courses (199/249/299zł), paired with wine from their exemplary cellar. Anyone can feast like a king from 13:00-16:00, however, with their 5-course lunch tasting menu (84zł). Is this the best dining experience in town? If the question even bears pondering, and it does, then do yourself a favour, make a reservation, and decide for yourself.
